    There's a thing called logistics. You break your shit, you tell supply and they give you a new one.

      The question is “how many”, though. However, there may be times where you can’t really get a replacement, which is why FRACUs came with fabric patch tapes.

    Depends entirely on where you are and the supply situation. I know that some guys in the Korengal basically had to make do with a single set for the entire trip.

      Probably true. I've had surplus that had duct tape over the tear.

        do soldiers not have 5 minutes to sew a patch under it

          Most soldiers don't know how to sew. Medics could probably figure it out. I only learned so I could mod my own gear. I was issued a sewing kit when I went through basic in 2013 but I don't think they give them out anymore again. tbh I always just used the patches that came with the fraccies. Love me some fraccies. I have some fraccies without holes that I wear in garrison because they're more comfy than shitass ACUs

            FRACUs are comfy. I like the old gen fracus with the velcros shin pocket. Either ways, they feel nice to wear compared to regular ACUs and the fabric feels nice too.

                You can also use the pocket as extra storage too. Pretty versatile.

                True, but most likely better for none bulky items. Like paper for example.

                People can steal by using those pockets too. Who’s going to check the shins for any stolen items?

                A properly trained soldier would strip you naked and turn every pocket inside out
                In civilian settings it'd probablt be easier if it's not a bulky item

                if I saw one of my soldiers putting documents in the shin pockets I would have smoked the dogshit out of them

                only real fear there is the elements, but that's something that would be an issue even if the documents are in the cargo- breast- or any other pocket

          Most people do not know how to sew and often find tapes to be more convenient. Its probably why they issue fabric patches that you can slap on the holes/tears because they know most soldiers are not going to sew if given the fabric to do so.

            velcro patches and nametapes/ranks also simplifies logistics

              At least for the army/airforce. Marines don't use velcro and the local tailor is making bank from marines paying them to sew.

                They look alright. Cryes has been making efforts to making their velcros less visible either by making them thinner or by making them more translucent.

      Why do dogs eyes glow in cameras?

      • 3 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Most animals who can hunt at night have better night vision due to light being reflected forward then back into the pupil more efficiently, that causes the excess light to be bounced back and thus cats and dogs have glowing eyes in pictures

            You'd have to graft/replace cones with rods, meaning mild color blindness but enhanced night vision.
            The rods are more efficient at light absorption but are only black white.

            Even if you grafted a tapetum lucidum into human eyes, I doubt the human brain is hardwired to make use of it.

              Actually the human brain learns to decode new signals fast as frick. Doesn't need to be hardwired in. If you hooked an antenna directly into your brain you'd be able to pick out local AM radio channels pretty quickly with some training. Peter Watts did a talk on the subject.a few years back discussing neuralink and other research in the field.

    Depends on the uniform, where you are, and what you do.

    I have seen some absolutely dogshit FRACU's. Shit looks like acid washed jeans, the type you see fat latinas at the mall wear with holes in them and shit. They had the fragility of cheap pajama pants.

      From what i heard, FRACUs should theoretically last like 4 months compared to regular ACUs, which is like 6 months.
